Redesigning the Arm

We had a problem with the robot arm on bagging day. We took the arm and elevator attachment off before bagging. The old arm bent the bracket that the motor lifting the arm was on.

In an attempt to make a simpler and lighter arm design, we used the durable, light, but not too cheap lexan, a poly carbonate. With the new arm almost complete, everyone can breathe easier being that the competition is coming up soon. The team has put in a lot of work over March break. We can’t wait for the competition.
